Born and raised in Ann Arbor, Michigan, guitarist, singer and songwriter Deniz Tek's career has now extended over three decades. Best known in Australia as a founding member of the influential 70s rock band Radio Birdman, Tek has pursued an ongoing musical path that has seen a significant number of solo releases as well as frequent touring and recording with figures emanating from Detroit's iconic bands The Stooges and MC5.

February 2013 marks the long awaited Citadel Records release of Detroit, Tek's first solo album in more than 10 years. Apart from luminous flashes of keyboards and harmonica, Detroit is at its heart, a guitar album, with Tek's vocals and signature guitar playing set against a rock solid rhythm section of veteran musicians.

Mixed at one of America's oldest recording studios, Houston's historic Sugar Hill, the album sounds raw and real with its themes often hard edged. Both sonically and lyrically, it will stand as a major evolutionary step forward for Tek's music as well as being a look back to his early days in Ann Arbor and the Motor City.

In support of the album, Deniz and band will tour Australia in February and March before heading to Europe and the US. Joining him on all Australian dates are fellow Citadel labelmates Leadfinger who will be promoting their new album No Room At The Inn. Catch the legendary Deniz Tek with Leadfinger supporting on Saturday 16th March at The Bridge Hotel Castlemaine.
